Read my blog (co-authored with a friend who is at HLS) here: http://similarlysituated.blogspot.com/


5/2: Yale it is.

In the end, after visiting to get a feel for each place and soaking up as much information as I could, I had my own reasons for choosing Yale (with Stanford a *very* close second over Harvard), and I feel blessed to have been given 13 wonderful options during the cycle.

4/15: Withdrew from UVA, Michigan. Down to three.

4/14: Columbia scholarship offer by mail; withdrew.

4/1: NYU financial aid offer by e-mail. Dean's Scholarship (breakdown: $25k/$25k/$12.5K with extra $12.5k if public interest 2L summer). Withdrew.

3/27: Accepted at Columbia via e-mail, after having been deferred back on 2/14.

3/24: Stanford financial aid award by e-mail (a few thousand better than both Yale and Harvard, because Stanford has a lower base loan amount; also they take less of your summer earnings).

3/19: Withdrew from Chicago, Duke, Georgetown, Northwestern, Penn.

3/18: Denied USC's Rothman at permanent address. Withdrew.

3/17: UVA Dillard scholarship phone call - full tuition & fees for three years.

3/12: Northwestern scholarship offer by e-mail. Also, Harvard financial aid award by e-mail (within a few hundred dollars of Yale's).

3/11: Full tuition (I'll estimate to $120k) Dean's Scholarship offer from GULC by e-mail, after responding to their "How much would we have to give you to have you come?" e-mail, telling them (nicely) they'd have to offer full tuition. Also, Yale financial aid award by e-mail.

3/10: Duke and UChicago scholarship offers in the mail.

2/29: E-mail notification of receiving the Levy at Penn.

2/27: Wrote Columbia LOCI.

2/19: In at Stanford via voice mail message and e-mail from Dean Diehl.

2/18: Scholarship offer from USC. Still to be considered for the Rothman (notified by 3/18), but this is a preliminary offer.

2/14: "On hold" at Columbia.

2/11: Invite from Penn to apply for the Levy Scholars program.

2/7: Phone call acceptance at Chicago.

1/29: BEST DAY EVER?!?
Got a full Darrow! 12:49 pm. Whoa!
Also, in at Yale! 3:38 pm. Whoa!!

1/25: In at USC via packet in the mail, dated 1/22.

1/23: In at Penn via phone call from the Dean.

1/21: In at Northwestern via status checker letter.

1/19: In at UVA with Dean's Scholarship (regular mail); switched to Decision on 1/17.

1/9: Darrow invite from Michigan via e-mail.

12/21: HLS binder on the steps when I got home.

12/17: Michigan acceptance packet; status checker changed on 12/15.

12/13: Toby Stock says, "Welcome to Harvard!"
* Note: didn't go complete until 12/14.

12/11: Harvard (phone) and Northwestern (in-person alumni) interviews.

12/10: Received snail mail acceptance package from NYU - stamped 12/7 but letter says 12/5.

12/07: Got Harvard phone call e-mail.

12/06: Good thing I called the UG's pre-professional advising office about Stanford's Dean Cert...it hadn't been sent yet. Note: this probably delayed my going-complete date at Stanford.

12/05: Duke admitted student packet in the mail.

12/04: Admitted to MA part of JD/MA at Duke (e-mailed).
- Also, received snail mail admit from Georgetown after flipping to "Decision" on 12/3.

11/27: Admitted to Duke's JD part of the JD/MA (e-mail).

11/05/07: Michigan e-mail offers $22k/year if admitted, apply by Dec 15th.

I think you will sweep the cycle... just a hunch :)

Good luck
Thursday, November 01 2007 at 05:00 PM

OMG, I wanna be you, just without the boobs and stuff.

Friday, November 02 2007 at 07:37 AM

Well Im jealous that you got right LSAT score the first time! I worked really long and really hard on my PS, editing countless drafts and bothering my friends and family to read it over and over againI think youre on the right track. Best of luck to you, I predict that your time investment will be well worth it :-D

Friday, November 02 2007 at 07:40 AM

I'm also jealous of all your fee waivers!

Friday, November 02 2007 at 09:04 PM

thanks for the congrats! Looks like we are just about numbers twins. Yeah, the PS can be hard -- find someone you trust who can assess it honestly.

Sunday, November 04 2007 at 10:34 PM

For the encouragement. While we do have similar schools, I think your #'s blow mine out of the water. Are you not applying to Boalt, btw?

Monday, November 05 2007 at 03:37 PM

"11/05/07: Michigan e-mail offers $22k/year if admitted, apply by Dec 15th. " Good thing that Michigan qualified its e-mail with "if admitted." ha. Awesome numbers though, have fun at H/Y/S!

top pick
Wednesday, November 07 2007 at 06:30 AM

well, at this point in time I EDed Penn, just because with my numbers it would be a steal if I got in there. However, I expect to get deferred, and Im taking the december LSAT. I drastically underperformed in June and am capable of scoring well into the 170's. So, if that happens (god willing), I'll certainly have my eye more on HSCNC. What about you? What's your first choice? ps. I'm already losing my mind from waiting. Waiting to retake the LSAT, waiting to hear from just 1 school, and waiting to lose my mind! ha ha

Thank You
Sunday, November 11 2007 at 07:49 AM

We have similar numbers, so I'll be very interested in seeing how you do. I'm applying mostly midwest because I want to practice in Chicago, and I kinda want to stay close to my wife's family and my own. Good luck - I'm sure they get snow in New Haven!

Monday, November 12 2007 at 09:11 PM

Feels great to finally get my first one out of the way. Let's just hope that it's not my only one as well ;). I'm sure you'll sweep the cycle so it seems rather silly for me to wish you luck, but GOOD LUCK nonetheless.

Tuesday, November 13 2007 at 05:31 AM

If we're number twins, you're the Arnold to my Danny Devito. You do amazing this cycle. My preemptive congrats!

Tuesday, November 13 2007 at 01:48 PM

Congrats on the LSAT score! Hope the cycle goes well (not that you need any hope/luck...)

Good Luck!
Tuesday, November 13 2007 at 05:44 PM

Thanks for the note; didn't see it until today :) I'm sure you'll rock out.

Great #s
Wednesday, November 14 2007 at 12:10 PM

With those numbers, you're cycle is going to be great!

re: Good Luck!
Friday, November 16 2007 at 10:20 AM

I'll be watching you as well. Best of luck to you!

Friday, November 16 2007 at 07:25 PM

hey thanks for the condolences. Yea I'm pretty bummed out about the waitlisted, would always be nice to start off the cycle with an accepatnce (something you'll be experiencing :D ). But such is life, and I've still got the december lsat and 14 more schools to hear back from. Good luck, and I'll keep you updated and you do the same!

Friday, November 16 2007 at 07:53 PM

...and congrats on the many acceptances that you are sure to receive in the coming months :)

Saturday, November 17 2007 at 01:46 PM

yesum. chenequa outside of Milwaukee. How bout you. Your stats are sick. You'll go far.

Sunday, November 25 2007 at 10:12 PM

you're only going to have to decide between H, Y and S...

Congrats on getting your applications in
Monday, November 26 2007 at 07:14 AM

I guess you were able to submit those applications in early after all :) Now just wait for Yale and Harvard and Stanford to admit you and all will be fine :)

Monday, November 26 2007 at 10:05 AM

i see you're complete at duke, too, on 11/20! fishy fishy. i think they put that date on the status checker thingy just to keep us OCD applicants happy and assuaged. good luck, though you won't need it - we'll be celebrating your first LS acceptance tomorrow! (it should be tomorrow, right? 7 days after you go complete?)

Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 02:04 PM

On Duke!

Congratulations on Duke
Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 07:04 PM

First congratulation of many :)

Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 07:17 PM

It's nice to have a few in the bag, but. . . I don't think you have anything to be jealous about!!! You're going to have an amazing cycle, and lots of great options. I'd kill to be in your position -- in line for a Hamilton/Darrow. Do you have a favorite at this point?

Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 07:20 PM

I get the feeling, though, that we'll likely receive responses from our overlapping schools at the same exact time. It's a shame I haven't gotten my Yale app out yet, though...it's taking me forever to finish the 250 word essay amidst the start of finals season... Anyway, best of luck!

Duke Joint Degree
Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 07:21 PM

Thanks for the note. :) Joint degree is JD/MA in Economics. Here's the relevant quote from the e-mail from B. Hoye: "We can send an official admission letter as soon as we receive notification from the Graduate School. Unfortunately, some graduate departments do not begin to review applications until after January 1. Therefore, it may take some time before you will receive the official admission letter." I got notification from the grad school online about 2 weeks later. Snail-mail came just a couple days after that. Now that I've provided that info, care to throw a few LSAT points my way or a Stanford acceptance that you'll surely turn down for Yale? :-p

Tuesday, November 27 2007 at 09:13 PM

that's funny. i actually run a small prostitution ring pimping out my sorority sisters. i had that on my resume. do you think it'll keep me out of law school?

Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 02:58 AM

Thanks, and congrats on Duke (and all of the other acceptances I'm sure you'll be receiving shortly!) Well, it's a two person move, and my boyfriend really doesn't want to go to CA. So yeah, Stanford wouldn't really make much of a difference at this point.

Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 03:40 AM

Thanks for the congrats! And congrats on Duke! Though I'm sure it's just the first of a long line of them. :-D

no surprise, but
Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 04:05 AM

CONGRATS!!! :) now hand that duke acceptance over to me when you send your deposit in at yale!

Thank B Rabbit
Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 05:18 AM

I appreciate the kind words. I doubt I'm going to Samford but I do know a few people who really enjoy it there! Also, I feel ya on the 11/24 update you've got. I got back from Thanksgiving expecting a ton of mail from my schools, and well, nothing, balls. 'Grats on Duke.

Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 06:52 AM

USC but no Boalt? That seems strange. Congrats on Duke and a heads-up congrats on Harvard because I'm sure you'll get in!

Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 08:41 AM

I'm sure you'll have a perfect cycle! Great job on the LSAT and GPA. Congrats on Duke.

Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 11:39 AM

I'm sure you'll be joining the HLS party quite soon :).

Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 01:26 PM

for the well wishes. It does feel good hearing back from places before Thanksgiving b/c it takes so much of the pressure off. But, I'm sure you have nothing to worry about. best of luck!

Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 05:24 PM

Wow. Money from Michigan without a formal acceptance; that must be some type of record.

99wally, again
thank you
Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 05:30 PM

and have fun picking between Harvard and Yale!

Oh yea?
Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 05:43 PM

I get those stupid things all the time too. It makes me feel like a Tier 4 all-star: Cooley, Ave Maria, etc. They're all sending me junk, ugh.

Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 06:12 PM

thats... interesting! chinese mafia. quite an aspiration. so though my GPA is a bit lower, i'm going to be watching you carefully. hopefully we'll both end up at HYS. (i'm sure you will.) have you gotten the first toby stock email? we might be in the same cycle for that.

Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 07:03 PM

for the congrats! I wasn't sure how the Geico quip would play (at least one person found it annoying), but I thought it would be fun to mix things up a bit. It would have been REALLY gutsy if I had said it to Dean Stock. Anyway, glad to see that you're in at Duke! Let me know if you want to talk shop about the HLS phone interview, as you'll be getting an email for it rather soon, I suspect. :-)

ts email
Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 07:25 PM

that will be the most anticipated e-mail i ever receive, i think. i hope it comes sooner rather than later or else i might go nuts.

Wednesday, November 28 2007 at 09:01 PM

for the note! I'm going to add HYS b/c, like you said, the "what if" factor. Congrats on Duke!

Location, Location, Location
Thursday, November 29 2007 at 04:02 AM

Thanks for the comment. I tried to pick schools in sunny, temperate, semi-urban places with pathways to D.C. I could get excited about attending any of them, though some more than others. I rowed. Are/were you an athlete?

Thursday, November 29 2007 at 11:31 AM

yah it was, thanks a lot. with your numbers, id say youll be getting a call soon enough

Thursday, November 29 2007 at 08:18 PM

Congrats to you also on Duke! And best of luck with all the others!

Good luck
Friday, November 30 2007 at 05:22 AM

I'm sure you know you won't need any luck, but I wish you some anyway (maybe it will push you over the edge at Yale or Stanford? Nah, you're probably in anyway). Looks like we applied around the same times to these schools. I'll race you for acceptances (I'm winning!).

Friday, November 30 2007 at 11:11 AM

Good luck to you too, although with your numbers I don't think you'll have any problems!

Friday, November 30 2007 at 03:17 PM

Yeah Georgetown was a complete surprise as my status checker still says "complete." I'm sure you'll be getting the little envelope next week, if you didn't today!

Saturday, December 01 2007 at 07:28 AM

And congratulations on Duke. Good luck on the rest of your applications, although it looks like you wont need it!

Saturday, December 01 2007 at 10:57 AM

Best of luck with your cycle as well!

Sunday, December 02 2007 at 03:55 PM

How do you indicate on your profile that you got a fee waiver?

Monday, December 03 2007 at 07:46 AM

Good luck, and congrats on your cycle. Are you a fellow hoya?

Monday, December 03 2007 at 10:48 AM

for the congrats. good luck with the rest of your cycle. Looks like you should do very well for yourself. Congratulations on the Michigan scholarship email. I've been really impressed with the people and administrators from Michigan.

99logged user
Monday, December 03 2007 at 03:20 PM

to you too! I see that Georgetown came quickly for you too! Although I don't imagine that you'll end up there! Good luck!!!

Thank you!
Monday, December 03 2007 at 08:33 PM

Thanks a lot, I really do hope more good news arrives. Your LSAT, GPA, and major are all awesome. I'm very envious of all three, wish I was better at natural sciences. My GPA would be higher. Anyway, you're going to sweep the cycle. Best of luck, but with those numbers you don't need it. Be patient, is what I tell everyone (myself included).

Monday, December 03 2007 at 09:46 PM

Congratulations to you as well (Duke/assuming GULC is a yes for us both). Looks like we applied around the same time to many of the same schools. My Boalt call was very surreal...funny circumstances.

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 10:32 AM

Same here, got an email on Nov. 16 notifying me that my app had been received but nothing since then. Though I doubt you have anything to worry about, you're gonna have an awesome cycle. Good luck deciding where to go!

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 11:37 AM

Yeah, this soon in the game (espec. w/ your numbers) its most likley an acceptance. But I don't want to jinx anythign by assuming before I get it in writing. As Tom Petty said, "the waiting is the hardest part."

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 11:56 AM

Thanks for the advice. I think I'll do a LOCI and 2 extra LORs. Hopefully I get better responses from my other schools! Congrats on Duke and a preemptive congrats on Gtown!

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 12:16 PM

You're from Sconnie??? Cool, meeeee tooo! good luck at all your schools!

complete at gtown
Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 01:36 PM

It looks like a lot of the ppl with 12-3 decision have strong numbers- hopefully this is a good sign! Anyway... no mail again today :( good luck --i'm sure you are in!

Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 05:14 PM

On Georgetown!

congrats on gtown!
Tuesday, December 04 2007 at 06:48 PM

and nice JD/MA joint decision at duke. :)

Wednesday, December 05 2007 at 10:43 AM

... yet so far apart. You're pretty much guaranteed to get in everywhere, and my soft factors are going to matter bigtime for HYS. And your science GPA is still worth more than my engineering GPA. Congrats on the Duke joint degree acceptance. I was impressed by USC's letter (and really impressed by their brochure) but I decided not to bite. Good luck!

Thursday, December 06 2007 at 05:01 AM

I saw you had a conversation on here with someone about WI, so I figured. I know what you mean...I was home at Thanksgiving and it made me realize how much I really really really want to go to Madison. Cross your fingers!

still no letter :(
Thursday, December 06 2007 at 01:08 PM

oh wow that must have been a nice surprise- you can celebrate immediately! I actually live really close to the law school also, which makes me even more confused that I haven't received a letter yet. Oh well, if I don't hear back by next week I'll give um a call. Congrats again on Gtown and all your upcoming acceptances.

Thursday, December 06 2007 at 05:30 PM

hey thanks! good luck!

Congrats and Good Luck.
Thursday, December 06 2007 at 07:19 PM

Congrats on GULC and DUKE. And goodluck with all the rest... If I could put money on your chances I would bet that you will sweep all but Y.

Friday, December 07 2007 at 09:22 AM

still nothing from penn either... i got an e-mail from them on the 16th telling me that they requested my report from LSDAS, but haven't heard anything since. let's keep each other updated! good luck with your cycle; it seems that you're already off to a strong start!

i knew it
Monday, December 10 2007 at 01:23 PM

we got the TS1 on the same day! congrats. when did you tell him to call you? i'm super nervous, but really excited!

Monday, December 10 2007 at 01:56 PM


Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 04:12 AM

Way to go on NYU!

harvard call
Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 09:24 AM

just had the interview! i was so nervous. i bet he'll call you soon. good luck!

Tuesday, December 11 2007 at 08:21 PM

Do you think there's any chance that Toby will do the TS2's before x-mas or will you (and, dear god, hopefully me as well) have to wait until January?

complete at penn
Wednesday, December 12 2007 at 12:53 PM

complete at penn today... have you heard anything?

Wednesday, December 12 2007 at 09:47 PM

Thanks for the congrats. Here's to Toby calls to all the nice little boys and girls next week and heres to us avoiding a lump of coal.

Thursday, December 13 2007 at 12:07 PM


Thursday, December 13 2007 at 12:41 PM

Thursday, December 13 2007 at 05:34 PM

On Harvard!

penn e-mail
Thursday, December 13 2007 at 06:07 PM

yep, they e-mailed me. congrats on harvard! you're sweeping the cycle :)

Go you!
Thursday, December 13 2007 at 08:58 PM

Way to go on Harvard! Thanks for noting that you hadn't yet officially gone complete, I haven't yet either and I was getting REALLY nervous!

Friday, December 14 2007 at 06:19 AM

on harvard!! maybe i'll see you at the ASW. i'm glad to see i'm not the only one who went complete today... haha.

Friday, December 14 2007 at 08:24 PM

...to you too! Now the long waiting begins...

Monday, December 17 2007 at 03:38 PM

On Michigan!

Thursday, December 20 2007 at 06:26 PM

i sooo wanna be you. the waiting is killing me.

Congrats to you, too!
Friday, January 04 2008 at 08:38 AM

And yeah, Michigan's not so bad, most of the time... although it gets a little hard to remember why I love it in the middle of January. =) Anyway, great list of acceptances there! Congrats, and good luck with the rest of your cycle, although I doubt you'll need it.

Thanks for the words of encouragement! I am actually 99% sure I am waitlisted at GULC since I cant access their admitted students website, but I am going to let them know of my continued interests and updated grades which will hopefully help! best of luck with the rest of your cycle..i am sure it will go very well with your stats! :-)

Saturday, January 05 2008 at 03:53 AM

Thanks for the congrats! My status checker didn't change at all. I went complete on 10/30, so the decision came right around the 8-week mark as they said it would. You have nothing to worry about!

Saturday, January 05 2008 at 11:06 AM

TY for the congrats! You're having quite the cycle, yourself. "Plan B" has been officially thrown out the window. I got into Michigan, so I'm definitely going to law school. Good luck @ Yale and Stanford.

Thanks! You too!
Sunday, January 06 2008 at 07:57 PM

Right now it's looking like Harvard or Yale, but I'm a big fan of NYC, so money from NYU or an acceptance/money from Columbia could really make my decision tough. What about you?

Monday, January 07 2008 at 06:09 AM

Thanks!! You too! Of course

Northwestern Status Change
Monday, January 07 2008 at 05:43 PM

Sorry, but I have no idea if my status changed before I was contacted regarding my admission. I hadn't been checking-up online. I got an e-mail on Friday telling me that I could access my official acceptance letter on Monday through my account. Today I signed into my account and I had to download a PDF in order to know that I'd been accepted (I mean, I knew I'd been accepted, but I wanted further confirmation...you know how it is).

Tuesday, January 08 2008 at 08:20 AM

I guess when you apply to as many schools as I did, it hopefully means a lot of acceptances! ;) Congrats on your amazing acceptances so far!

Tuesday, January 08 2008 at 10:32 AM

...for the vote of confidence. I'm crossing my fingers! You certainly look like you're going to place well this cycle. Good luck at YS!

Tuesday, January 08 2008 at 06:06 PM

You're looking like you've had a good cycle too. At this point, I'm pretty undecided, it probably depends on some combination of financial aid and prestige. Do you have a top choice?

Thank you!
Tuesday, January 08 2008 at 08:04 PM

Congrats to yourself as well! It's gonna be a hard choice, but I'm leaning towards Harvard and Stanford (if I get in)... I applied to the MBA programs there for the dual-degree, and if I get in to a JD/MBA (I'll find out in March) it'll be a sure sell. How about yourself?

Thank you..
Tuesday, January 08 2008 at 08:11 PM

and Congrants on all your acceptance! Just wish if I had your LSAT...seems that you are familiar with DC...Not sure if I will attend because I heard that American does not give any money to Int'l student like me...

Wednesday, January 09 2008 at 04:41 PM

Hey, Thanks for the congrats. I have no idea where Im going to end up. If I could get big money somewhere (like Mich or Northwestern), I'd probably take it. If not, probably H, but I'll make some visits and see. Congrats on all of the acceptances. I'm sure more are on the way. Also, congrats on the Darrow. That's awesome.

Great Cycle
Thursday, January 10 2008 at 05:00 PM

Congrats on the Darrow invite!

Friday, January 11 2008 at 05:32 AM

Yes, money is a beautiful thing! Thanks for the congrats and congrats on your amazing acceptances. I'm sure that's all you'll be seeing this cycle!

V Nice
Friday, January 11 2008 at 10:06 AM

Thanks for the shout. Congrats on what you've achieved.

why thank you
Friday, January 11 2008 at 02:09 PM

yeah, you know, once you drop that into a resume, it really helps haha, but seriously, congrats to you as well. i'd like to say we're numbers twins, but your GPA slaughters mine. i'm jealous of that Harvard acceptance.

Saturday, January 12 2008 at 09:49 AM

Have you heard from them? I haven't, nor did I receive a deferral email. I'm wondering if we're headed for the waitlist because of YP. BTW, congrats on your latest acceptances!

Saturday, January 12 2008 at 06:05 PM

Yeah, that's the hard part :)

Sunday, January 13 2008 at 01:26 PM

Yeah, I am really really happy about Stanford. I visited the Bay Area, and I got a really good vibe at Stanford. My decision will probably come down to my experiences at the Harvard and Stanford ASW's. There are things I liked about NW, but I applied there with the assumption that I probably wouldn't get into Harvard and Stanford, so I feel better about the NW deferral knowing what I do now. Are you big on any particular school?

Sunday, January 13 2008 at 03:04 PM

to you too! You've already got some fantastic options (might I mention one in particular that starts with a HAR and ends with a VARD!), and I'm sure it won't be long before Stanford comes knocking. Just finished a first draft of the Darrow essay but I'm struggling to make it not be a rehash of my PS and Why Mich essays. Good luck with yours, but I doubt you have much to worry about. Fingers crossed for both of us!

Re: Are they crazy??
Wednesday, January 16 2008 at 09:51 AM

I'm pretty bummed about all the deferrals, but at the same time I know I am a very non-typical applicant and so I'm not surprised that a lot of top schools are choosing to wait before they get back to me. I am just hoping that it's not YP. I do plan to submit some extra material, probably an additional letter of rec, so they know I am serious about their school. Good luck on all your amazing acceptances thus far! Hopefully there are more in store for both of us :)

I don't want to ruin the surprise...
Thursday, January 17 2008 at 08:18 PM

but it's not #5 (not that there's much of a surprise to ruin). Congrats on the Big H acceptance and the Darrow invite. I'm ultra jealous.

Thursday, January 17 2008 at 09:51 PM

I'm sure your Chicago acceptance will be coming soon, and that you will comprise many green dots and no red dots (knock on wood).

Re: Congrats!
Friday, January 18 2008 at 06:05 AM

Thanks! I'm sure you'll be hearing good news from Chicago soon :). I'm in biomedical engineering, with plans to go into biotech patent law. Having been trained as an engineer speaks to at least part of the reason why I'm interested in patent law, since it provided me with an interest in the process of translating academic research into an actual product. I think working in patent law could be a gratifying way to be a part of that process. Also, issues of biotech IP fascinate me, since they have such a strong impact on how the biotech industry operates. Finally, I just really enjoy writing. Are you interested in going into patent law, as well? Congrats on a fantastic cycle so far!

Friday, January 18 2008 at 10:42 AM

Congrats to you as well. I imagine you have a lot more acceptances on the way too, with the stats you have. Good luck!

Saturday, January 19 2008 at 01:44 PM

On Virginia!

Saturday, January 19 2008 at 11:36 PM

'grats on UVa =)

Monday, January 21 2008 at 12:24 PM

And I won't be surprised once you've swept your cycle. Best of luck :)

Monday, January 21 2008 at 05:12 PM

Congrats on Northwestern and good luck with the Darrow!

Tuesday, January 22 2008 at 08:36 AM

Congrats on UVA! I'm not surprised why they gave you the scholarship, but I'm still trying to figure out why they gave one to me... :) Yes hopefully we will hear good news from Columbia pretty soon!

Tuesday, January 22 2008 at 03:11 PM

Done and done. I have posted that info, and I am indeed headed out to celebrate. Not for too long, though. I have to graduate still! Congrats on all your success - I am sure there is more to come for you.

For sure
Tuesday, January 22 2008 at 05:03 PM

...assuming they win the last one. Still, I like their (our) chances.

Wednesday, January 23 2008 at 11:07 AM

On Penn!

Friday, January 25 2008 at 01:40 PM

...on all of your acceptances, and the Darrow invite. Sorry for not getting back to you earlier. At this point, I think Harvard is my frontrunner, but I may go Chicago if I end up loving the city and school (never been to Chi). Also, I would STRONGLY consider Stanford, although I doubt i'll get in. What about you?

Friday, January 25 2008 at 03:10 PM

On Penn and SC. I visited Penn and I really loved it. Good facilities and great people. Your decision is getting tougher by the day it seems!

Friday, January 25 2008 at 09:51 PM

Are you also biting your nails waiting to hear from Dean Z? I have a long and embarrassing history of snipping my hair while tipsy- have learned, though, let a professional do it this time....If you thought that was funny, let me flesh out your mental picture. Had attack of iritis last week and ended up writing essay in eyepatch and glasses. I am so cool. Or at least my hair is. Kind of. You are on the West Coast, right? Guess you'll be hearing from CU tomorrow or Monday....Good luck deciding between your many great alternatives- any ideas yet?

Follow up
Monday, January 28 2008 at 08:23 PM

For no good reason, I thought you were on the West Coast (late night posting, I guess). I hope they put us out of our misery soon- every day, I get more twitchy. Plus, I want to make plane reservations...I'm sure you will hear from Columbia any sec- obviously you will get in, and most likely with a nice scholarship! I'll be watching for you....

Let me be the first...
Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 01:24 PM

to congratulate you on an AMAZING day! Nice work!

Darrow and Yale
Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 01:48 PM

Congrats on the Darrow! I was looking forward to seeing who would join us. And congrats on Yale. You have great options for what looks like it might be a difficult decision. Are you going to a Michigan ASW? Which one?

Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 02:24 PM

congrats on yale!!!

Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 02:26 PM

Now that you've gotten into to Yale, would you be so kind as to fill in some EC info. I understand if you want to wait for Chi... Thanks!

Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 02:28 PM

Sorry, didn't see the other two pending apps. Still, whenever you're ready, I'd really appreciate some more info...

Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 02:43 PM

See you at some ASWs, indeed! Well done on Yale! And the Darrow, too! I am pleased to see my prediction has become reality. I hope to see you in New Haven in April.

Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 02:49 PM

on everything that happened today! Hope some of your anxiety is relieved =) Which ASWs are you going to?

Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 02:50 PM

On Yale!

Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 05:37 PM

I'm late to the party, I know, but CONGRATS!!! I'm really thrilled for you! Make sure you join the YLS 2011! Facebook group. Oh, also, you do a really impressive job of updating your LSN. Mine is completely half-assed and now I feel bad.

Tuesday, January 29 2008 at 06:59 PM

...on Yale! I am jealous :) Enjoy the happily difficult decision process.

you too!
Wednesday, January 30 2008 at 05:30 AM

thanks for the message, and CONGRATS on yale!! :)

Wednesday, January 30 2008 at 11:21 AM

to you too! Yale and full Darrow at Michigan, wow! Speaking of difficult choices, right? :) The fact that you haven't gotten into Columbia yet makes me very OK with the fact that I haven't... same goes for Chicago and Stanford :) I'm sure you will be hearing from them soon.

Wednesday, January 30 2008 at 03:45 PM

What an awesome week for you! Hope you had a (scissors-free) drink or three yesterday. Hope to meet up soon!

Chicago? Yale!
Wednesday, January 30 2008 at 06:27 PM

First off, congratulations on Yale! Sounds like you had a pretty amazing day yesterday (I'm in the same situation - trying to weigh full tuition+ stipend against the premiere legal institution(s)..it'll be tough). I'm sure you've gotten it a thousand times by now but major congrats! Anyway, I came across your profile because I was looking through the strong applicants that haven't been admitted to Chicago yet...a little strange, no? Do you know what's going on with them?

Wednesday, January 30 2008 at 07:13 PM

I see that we are Yale acceptance twins - so congrats on that and on your other great choices. I'm guessing I'll be seeing you at some ASWs down the line...

Wednesday, January 30 2008 at 08:57 PM

Sadly, no alcohol for me until Friday pm...but then.....I can't make ASW, but I'm visiting in mid-April. What schools are you planning to visit? So many choices for you....

not sure yet...
Thursday, January 31 2008 at 07:50 AM

I'm leaning towards Yale, but H and S are still in the picture. I just noticed that we also got into H on the same day! I have a feeling that you'll be completing the sweep soon and then will have even more tough choices....

Michigan ASW
Thursday, January 31 2008 at 04:17 PM

I'm going in March - as a potential summer start, I wanted to visit on the earlier date (and keep the later weekend open for NYU). I'm visiting NU in a few weeks, since I can't commit to the ASW (too bad they can't have more than one). I really can't afford to take this much time off of work, and it needs to be planned well in advance so I'm nervous that late acceptances will mean I can't make ASWs. Have you applied for fin aid for NU? I was surprised how early they wanted it (means I spent the whole evening filing my taxes and filling out forms to make sure things were processed with enough time) and that if you missed the deadline you couldn't get scholarships... (and Yale isn't an automatic for you?)

Haha, the you have this round
Friday, February 01 2008 at 11:10 AM

Both Chicago and Columbia have a second major day of acceptances, that will probably be towards the end of next week. Yale has no such thing =) I'd say you have the win!

This process
Friday, February 01 2008 at 08:08 PM

has definitely been very stressful. Don't really know what to do with myself now that it's pretty much over! I'm really looking forward to the asws though, just to meet everyone who has been through all of this in the last few months. I'm sure we'll run into each other at a few of them! (And I think Columbia's having some mailing issues...my letter took over a week to get to me, and I live in nyc. I really don't think there's any doubt about them giving you some good news.)

Saturday, February 02 2008 at 01:15 PM

Congrats to you too! And I wouldn't miss the ASW for the world.

Saturday, February 02 2008 at 04:45 PM

Thanks for the congrats. I'm currently leaning northeast, but definitely haven't made any decisions. Such tempting factors in all directions!

Tuesday, February 05 2008 at 04:57 PM

Nice job with Yale! Is that where you're going to enroll?

Wednesday, February 06 2008 at 11:33 AM

USC came in via a little envelope - I thought it was a rejection letter until I opened it. It was a really interesting read. I'm positive Columbia will get back to you soon. their acceptance packages are huge, they probably can't get them all ready by February.

Wednesday, February 06 2008 at 01:18 PM

Well, I'm not quite sure. I'm from NYC so I'm thinking NYU. I'm still waiting for them to send me some FA info. However, the money at GULC is looking pretty tempting. However, an acceptance to Columbia would override all of this. An acceptance and $$ would be ideal, but I'll settle for just an acceptance and figure out how to pay.

C and C
Wednesday, February 06 2008 at 07:30 PM

Yeah, I'll be honest, I am a little surprised that I haven't heard back from Chicago yet. However, I can say I'm not terribly surprised about Columbia. They sent me an e-mail requesting fall semester grades and I pretty much ignored it for the same reasons I didn't end up applying to Yale-- I'm already in at H and I was lazy. Not good excuses, but I figured it would've been a wasted effort given I'm already set on Cambridge.

Thursday, February 07 2008 at 02:07 PM

...on all your acceptances, including Chicago today! You'll hear back from Columbia and Stanford soon enough.

Thursday, February 07 2008 at 02:09 PM

On Chicago!

Tuesday, February 12 2008 at 04:38 AM

And congratulations back atcha on a remarkable cycle so far. I don't think you get to be jealous ...

Thursday, February 14 2008 at 02:51 PM

on an amazing cycle so far! Any idea what you did to piss off Columbia?

Thursday, February 14 2008 at 06:23 PM

Being in at HY and the Darrow and Umich, I would assume you have more than just great numbers. With those options, are you still considering Columbia?

Thursday, February 14 2008 at 06:42 PM

Just checking! Good luck with your LOCI. I feel pretty sure you'll be accepted as long as they know you're still interested. I've recognize you from TLS, so talking to you on here sorta makes me feel like I am stalking you :) Good luck with your choices!

Friday, February 15 2008 at 12:09 AM

I'm completely boggled by Columbia putting you on "hold" (what the heck were they thinking??) I guess when they see an outstanding applicant like you they do one of two things: give them a Hamilton, or put them on hold for yield protect purposes...but anyway, it looks like you have a few other schools to choose from :)

Yale ASW
Friday, February 15 2008 at 07:19 PM

I'll be there if I can free my schedule up a bit. How long after your acceptance call did you receive your first Yale mailing? CLJ said the package would go out "soon", but the last school that used those words took about two and a half weeks to get me any additional information.

Tuesday, February 19 2008 at 12:46 PM

On Stanford!

Tuesday, February 19 2008 at 01:34 PM

Congrats! Nice HYS sweep. Now you have quite a tough choice to make! That is awesome.

Tuesday, February 19 2008 at 02:48 PM

Congrats on Stanford!!! Are you going to the ASW?

Wednesday, February 20 2008 at 10:05 AM

Congrats on Stanford!! Very exciting :) Have you made your decision yet?

Thursday, February 21 2008 at 09:01 PM

You've got a tough decision ahead of you... lots of great schools to choose from, I can't imagine it will be easy. Best of luck with the visits, I hope you find the right fit for you :) Thanks for the kind words, and congrats again!

Monday, March 03 2008 at 11:31 PM

congrats for the awesome cycle know where you're heading yet?

Thursday, March 06 2008 at 09:34 AM

congrats on everything!! you prob get this question a lot, but any inclination on where you'll be heading?

Saturday, March 15 2008 at 07:44 PM

Wow, good job! When I've fantasized about having numbers like yours, I've always dreamed of deliberating between Yale and Chicago and trying to get Chicago to guarantee my full scholarship and stipend. Did any of your scholarship offers come with a guarantee that you will get the money regardless of your academic performance? Not that you'd need such a guarantee, considering. Just curious. Also, were any of the awards offered as a percent of tuition rather than a dollar amount so as to protect you from increasing tuition rates? Good luck destroying law school and congratulations again on having the best choices possible!

Thursday, March 27 2008 at 05:04 PM

virusny was correct. Congrats!

Friday, March 28 2008 at 07:06 AM

on a clean sweep!

Friday, March 28 2008 at 05:50 PM

On Columbia!

This fall
Sunday, April 06 2008 at 01:55 PM

I'm still not sure. I've gotten to visit a couple schools so far and I'm going to Harvard's ASW next weekend and possibly a trip to UVa and Duke the week after that. Have you decided yet?

Monday, April 07 2008 at 06:49 PM

Congrats on the Sweep! Good luck making your decision!

Re: Thank You!
Tuesday, April 08 2008 at 08:27 AM

I am still waiting to hear back from the rest of the schools... otherwise I am leaning towards Boalt.

Stanford ASW
Wednesday, April 09 2008 at 02:24 PM

Yeah, I am really looking forward to it. BTW, you were nominated for "best cycle' on LSD. I don't think I can disagree with that.

Tuesday, April 22 2008 at 07:13 AM

Congrats on the clean sweep, and good luck with your decision!

big congrats!!!
Sunday, July 20 2008 at 09:27 AM

Congratulations on all your acceptances! did you go to a top undergrad?
